Music superstar and business entrepreneur, Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson today announced the launch of his latest business venture, SMS Promotions, a boxing promotions company which was recently granted promoters license by the Nevada State Athletic Commission. Jackson was approved for a license in New York earlier this year.

SMS Promotions has already acquired four top fighters in the industry including former featherweight title holder Yuriorkis Gamboa, super middle weight contender Andre Dirrell, Australian IBF featherweight titlist Billy Dib and featherweight contender Celestino Caballero.

"I love boxing and have always been a big fan of the sport, so it feels especially great for me to be involved with the game at this level. My goal is to build SMS Promotions into one of boxing's most respected promoters and bring the best fights to audiences nationwide," states Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson.

SMS Promotions and Top Rank will co-promote Gamboa's bout on the Pacquiao-Marquez IV undercard on December 8, 2012. The fight will be produced and distributed Live by HBO Pay-Per-View from the MGM Grand Garden Arena, in Las Vegas. Gamboa's opponent is yet to be determined.

Widely recognized as one of the most talented and prolific music artists of his time, Jackson has sold over 22 million albums worldwide and launched numerous businesses across a broad spectrum including music ownership, artist management, film production, footwear and clothing, fragrance, video games, publishing and energy drinks.
